This was my first time in Raleigh, and I was there for a few days for work. Raleigh is a small city with a lot of culture and an artistic vibe to it.
So I️ travel typically 1-2 times a month. I️’m literally always in the airport. I️ thought it was about time to share some travel tips and tricks that make flying easy and efficient.
I spent months searching for the perfect affordable wedding invitations for my nuptials. Everything I found was either too cheap looking or out of my price range.
Let’s talk gut health....
Probiotics are foods or supplements that contain these friendly bacteria, and are supposed to help colonize our guts with health-boosting microorganisms. Probiotic foods include yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, tempeh, kimchi and others. #blackhealth #nutrition #holistichealth #mealprep #holisticnutrition #wholefoods
What is Reiki? It is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being. My Reiki Experience I used a Groupon. Probably not the best way to experience it, but hey, I had to start somewhere and I wanted to do it affordably in case it was a load of crap. [ 388 more words ]
Self-care is so important, yet so under-utilized. Stress is real and it can kill you. I have been exploring holistic health the last few years, which literally is the focus of the body and caring for it as a WHOLE, mind, body, and soul. It's all connected and it's all so important. As a generation, we are overworked, overweight, underpaid, and under-socialized. [ 439 more words ]
Yoga Bae AKA Britteny is a Yoga Instructor from the San Francisco area. She specializes in a somewhat alternative yoga practice to create an inclusive and fun space. I have been following her on social media for a while and saw that she was hosting a class here in Atlanta and decided to go. I can count on my fingers the number of times I have been to a yoga class, but I was intrigued about what she had to offer, since she hosted "Trap Yoga" here in Atlanta a month or two ago in conjunction with the rapper 2Chainz for his album release.

We are currently about 4 months from out wedding day. I have been a wedding planning machine. I love wedding planning, since it feeds my need to make lists and do lots of research, two things I LOVE to do. I think my wedding planning journey has been relatively calm and tame compared to some of the horror stories I have read or heard. [ 411 more words ]
Trader Joe's Haul with my RX bar fix. I would buy them more often but they are expensive! I also bought SPF moisturizer because I try to be really diligent about sun protection in the spring and summer months (I live in Georgia). Avocado on sprouted toast with Everything but the Bagel Seasoning, sriracha, and roasted tomatoes is AMAZING! You should try it! [ 62 more words ]
I'm a firm believer that most illnesses can be prevented or treated naturally. In addition to a healthy and balanced diet, there are lots of supplements available that you can take to take your health to an optimum level and prevent illness. Please do your own research and talk to your doctor before starting any kind of supplementation. I am not a medical professional and what works for me may not work for you. [ 131 more words ]
Carrot cake for Easter dessert is a tradition for me and my family. It's delicious and super simple to make, especially for me, as I don't consider myself a baker, but I'm trying. Everyone likes it and it's semi-healthy (you know, cuz of the carrots, LOL) Here is my recipe for it. Enjoy! Carrot Cake Ingredients 1 cups vegetable oil… [ 189 more words ]
I was excited to talk about this because I've never paid attention to it and it happened to me this month. My cycle synched up with the full moon. That means I'm close to synching up with the new moon, which is optimal. I will be synced correctly during the month of June. What does the moon have to do with hormones? [ 1,006 more word ]
Mercury retrograde: what does this mean? Three or four times a year, Mercury passes the earth in its orbit. As it rounds the bend, Mercury slows down and appears to stop (station) and spin backward (retrograde). In astrology, Mercury rules communication, travel, and technology and retrograde makes it all crazy for 3 weeks. Mercury retrograde can crash electronic equipment. Expect delays if traveling, and pack a book to entertain yourself while you wait for the tardy bus or plane. [ 386 more words ]
